There was a change of source in this vineyard for the 2012 vintage in favour of a more diligent and organic grower. The parcel in play lies close to the Volnay 1er Cru Clos de la Barre and the vines are now 50 years old on average. Les Mitans is considered one of the most elegant expressions of Volnay, even though Leroux delivers a wine of real depth and intensity. The vineyard is mid-slope and exposed due east with a light, stony topsoil. A light touch of whole bunches (10%) adds a sappy note to the wine’s captivating floral and cherried core. Focused, fleshy fruit balanced by intense, ferrous minerality and plenty of ripe tannins. A superb Les Mitans that will only get better with time.
